When I was young, maybe elementary school age, I was in a drugstore with my family and was left alone for a minute on one of the aisles. A man walked past me and just barely grazed my bottom with his finger or hand. I remember looking after him as he kept on walking. He never turned around or acknowledged me in any way. I thought maybe it was an accident and forgot about it.
A minute later it happened again. Again, no acknowledgement - just like it was an "accident".
This time I went and told my mother. She believed me and told me to stay close to her and that was the end of it.
I guess I have 2 questions.
1. To this day there are certain areas on my bottom I cannot stand to be touched and I wonder if my body is still reacting to the invasion.
2. If I ever see this happen to my child or another is there anything more you can do than remove the child from the situation and call store security?
Thanks for your input!
